Roy "Chubby" Brown (born Roy Vasey; 3 February 1945) is an English stand-up comedian, famous for his sarcastic blue humour. The controversial nature of his act means he rarely appears on major television channels, and Brown has attracted accusations that his comedy style is outdatedwhilst simultaneously being described as "the most important comedian of the past 25 years".
Brown's image is characterised by a clown-like stage costume consisting of a flying helmet and goggles, a multicoloured patchwork jacket and trousers, a white shirt, a red bow tie and moccasin slippers.
During his long career, he has caused offence by mocking various groups and individuals, including ethnic minorities, women, and himself, yet he maintains a loyal fan base. Brown's live shows are rarely seen on television, as many of his jokes are deemed sexist, racist, or otherwise prejudiced and he relies on strong language. However, a programme about Brown's comedy, called Roy Chubby Brown: Britain's Rudest Comedian was broadcast on Channel 4 on 8 May 2007.
